Student who shared BBC story about Thai king freed from jail

A student activist who was imprisoned for sharing a BBC article about Thailand’s king on Facebook has been released under a royal pardon. Jatupat Boonpattararaksa was sentenced in August 2017 to 2 ½ years in prison after pleading guilty on charges of insulting the monarchy. He was arrested in December 2016 for sharing a profile of the king which included mentions of the king’s past personal life.
